During the finale, she picked Clark as her final rose recipient and they got engaged. In February, the former Bachelor in Paradise star told Marie Claire that they're "dating right now while being engaged." Adams also explained that there wasn't a set time they had in mind for their nuptials. "At first, Zac was the person to be like, 'We could get married next week.' And I was like, 'Slow your roll.' I'd love to date a year," she told the magazine. "And now I'm like, 'You want to … maybe next month?' And he's like, 'Tayshia, slow your roll.' We're back and forth. But there's no timeline. It's definitely going to happen. I just don't know when," she added. London Entertainment / SplashNews.com Will you accept this rose?

The following month, Adams shut down breakup speculation after she was spotted without her engagement ring. "There's always weird rumors circulating around that I'm not wearing my ring and that Zac and I are broken up. I don't know what is happening, but you guys, I was holding my phone with my left hand," the former phlebotomist said on her Instagram Story. "But ironically enough, as I was showing my hand maybe a week and a half ago, my ring was literally swinging around my finger, and a lot of you messaged me like, 'Don't lose your ring!' Well, I was in L.A. for a hot minute and was able to finally drop off my ring and get it sized." Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty "So yes, ironically, it was my right hand in my Story, but I also just got my ring sent in to be cleaned and sized, finally — it's been, like, six months since I've had it," she added, noting that "everything is good on this forefront" and that she would have her ring again soon.

"The world is a better place today then it was yesterday because of you ….. KEEP GOING." Speaking with PEOPLE ahead of the race, Clark said that the couple was eager to spend some quality time together after crossing the finish line. "We're really looking forward to kicking back after we get done and really spending some time here in New York," Clark said.
